    Property letting agencies normally have an office where tenants can visit and view details of potential properties. Do you plan on making a room in your house available for visitors in this way?

    Do you plan on specialising in commercial or residential lettings?

    Hi Fergal,
    The area I wish to specialise is residential lettings, I have office facilities in the grounds of my home.
    I was really seeking advice on any professional qualifications that may be required in Ireland republic of.
    Thanks
    John

    John, the Society of Chartered Surveyors (SCS) have merged with the Irish Auctioneers & Valuers Institute (IAVI) to form The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland. I'd suggest that you give them a call (01 - 661 1794) to clarify any issues regarding regulation of letting agencies. You can also view their website at http://www.scsi.ie/

    Please do post back here to let us know if they were able to answer your questions.

    This is actually something I was close to setting up a couple of years ago, but decided not to for personal reasons (In Dublin) I will PM you a couple of useful links, but be patient I have to find them first!
